Cohesity unveils backup service for Google Cloud

10 Apr 2019

Cohesity announced the release of a new software as a service (SaaS) solution that delivers enterprise-grade backup and recovery for applications running on Google Cloud. Cohesity Cloud Backup Service for Google Cloud eliminates the need for customers to deploy backup software, infrastructure, or brittle custom scripts. Instead, customers can benefit from backup SaaS capabilities that are easy to use and integrate natively with Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Annual spending on cloud infrastructure services rose by 48 per cent in 2018 and as organisations bring more enterprise production workloads to the cloud, they expect data protection and backup that matches the ease-of-use associated with public cloud services like Google Cloud. Now, with a few simple clicks, enterprises can sign up for the Cohesity Cloud Backup Service to backup and recover their production workloads. The integration with GCP empowers enterprises to simplify management and hit critical service level agreements (SLAs).

Google Cloud engineering VP Rich Sanzi says, ''With organisations looking to leverage the cloud and eliminate the need to provision infrastructure, backup of cloud-native workloads is a critical part of the data protection strategy.

''Integrations with technology partners like Cohesity provide a simple and easy Backup-as-a-Service experience with Google Cloud, empowering customers to focus on what matters most -- growing their business.''

Cohesity Cloud Backup Service for Google Cloud offers a range of new capabilities and benefits that make it easy for enterprises to meet business and regulatory backup compliance requirements.

Enterprise-grade backup and protection for public cloud workloads

Cohesity snapshot integration with GCP provides native backup of Google Compute virtual machines (VMs), with granular search and recovery. Cohesity Cloud Backup Service delivers near-zero recovery times (RTOs) to any point in time, and reduces recovery point objectives (RPOs) to only a few minutes, empowering customers to meet the same stringent RPO/RTO requirements expected of on-premises offerings.

Management ease and simplicity

Cohesity Cloud Backup Service offers a single SaaS-based dashboard for all management tasks and provides self-service capabilities based on user roles. The service is natively integrated with GCP's Identity and Access Management (IAM), helping to ensure users only have access to the resources specific for their job or task. Cohesity further reduces complexities through one-click deployment and reusable policies that eliminate the need for manual processes or custom scripts to automate backup scheduling, enforce retention policies, and consolidate backup activity.

Consumption-based billing

Cohesity Cloud Backup Service offers consumption-based pricing that is fully integrated with GCP billing and available through the GCP Marketplace. Pay-as-you-go monthly charges enable customers to minimise capital expenditures and administrative complexity.

Cohesity SVP Vineet Abraham says, ''Cohesity has quickly become a preferred choice for customers to back up their cloud and on-premises workloads, and we want to make it easy for enterprises to leverage our innovative and efficient platform no matter where their data resides. ''We're excited to add to the powerful capabilities of GCP so that companies can overcome mass fragmentation challenges and truly maximise the value of their data.''
